The KAL square for Meg has finished and here is the result - I think its very pretty and with all the other squares done in blue and white, they will make a beautiful blanket. If you'd like the pattern you can find it here.
Another finished project is this little bag that started as a mystery KAL (knit-a-long) at the Knit4Charities (K4C) conference in June 2011. Here's the front ..
I'd never done illusion knitting before (sometimes called mosaic knitting) and must say its quite fascinating and fairly simple.
Having finished these projects has made me feel less guilty about what arrived on my doorstep this morning .......
Those are 200g balls of King Cole DK which I bought from a supplier in Ireland. They are destined to become baby blankets and I'm itching to get started. The balls on the right are for this. I thought Heather's blanket was so pretty that I wanted to do one in the same colours. Haven't decided what pattern I'll use for the blue and white yarn.
I'm off now to do some shopping at ToysRus ... my grandson is turning 10 next week and he wants one of those 'retro' skateboards (like mummy had) - also think I might get him an iTunes voucher so he can buy whatever he likes with it.
Speaking of shopping, went to the supermarket on the weekend - can you believe this?
Have a lovely week.
